With this volume, Le Tellier concludes the three-part bibliographical project he began with A Bibliography of the English Novel from the Restoration to the French Revolution (CH, Nov'95) and elaborated upon with The English Novel, 1660-1700 (CH, Feb'98). The present work is arranged in two parts. Part 1 lists, alphabetically by author, the bibliographies, anthologies, and general studies of the period, the latter including books, articles, and dissertations published through 1997. Part 2 consists of an alphabetical list first of titles (for anonymous works) and then of authors and their works. Entries for each author or title vary as attention paid them has varied, but most follow the reference to the 18th century title with sections on editions and criticism. The volume concludes with a list of selected titles arranged chronologically and has both a scholar index and an index to secondary works by subject. The introduction should be read carefully regarding guidelines for inclusion and exclusion. Le Tellier deliberately does not duplicate work found in related bibliographies for certain authors in part 2, and refers readers to those earlier publications that he intends only to complement or supplement. ^BSumming Up: Recommended.

Summaries
Long Description
The English novel written between 1700 and 1740 remains a comparatively neglected area. In addition to Daniel Defoe, whose Robinson Crusoe and Moll FlanderS≪/i> are landmarks in the history of English fiction, many other authors were at work. These included such women as Penelope Aubin, Jane Barker, Mary Davys, and Eliza Haywood, who made a considerable contribution to widening the range of emotional responses in fiction. These authors, and many others, continued writing in the genres inherited from the previous century, such as criminal biographies, the Utopian novel, the science fictional voyage, and the epistolary novel. This annotated bibliography includes entries for these works and for critical materials pertinent to them. The volume first seeks to establish the existing studies of the era, along with anthologies. It then provides entries for a wide-ranging selection of works which cover fictional, theoretical, historical, political, and cultural topics, to provide a comprehensive background to the unfolding and understanding of prose fiction in the early 18th century. This is followed by an alphabetical listing of novels, their editions, and any critical material available on each. The next section provides a chronological record of significant and enduring works of fiction composed or translated in this period. The volume concludes with extensive indexes.
